Matterport to Cardboard Conversion ... by Matterport

So, there's a 3rd party solution for conversion of Matterport to Google Cardboard:

http://www.mp2vr.com/

Now, I've played around with reverse engineering Matterport tours and found a rather reliable method for extracting all of the images from each tour ... and it seems that there's some other information that can be pulled too and reassembled. I have no idea how these folks are doing this service, but it would occur to me that they are using a very clever process to harvest the data from a tour and rebuild it. I absolutely love that.

My question is -- if they are offering this service, why can't Matterport?

  • Having a VR version to allow clients to include on their sites would be great!

  • street view conversion from howner.com or mp2sv.com will allow cardboard VR via the street view app. I am assuming the matterport solution offers the best overall experience and until it is publicly available in a turn key fashion you may want check the third parties
